Why print bigoted columnist?


Dear Editor,

If your paper had a regular column in which the writer routinely claimed that all Jews, all blacks, all atheists, all Hindus or all Methodists were lunatics out to kill and maim any and all Americans, some of your readers might consider him to be an unwholesome bigot, and they would be right. Yet you regularly print the unrepentant bigot William Slusher and his not-very-cleverly disguised implication that ALL Muslims are intent on murder and mayhem (including grade-school children, William?).

The obvious question is why do you print these, including his latest hate-message? Does he have some controlling financial interest in the newspaper? One Donald Trump at a time is enough.
